Publisher's Summary

N8-C, better known as Nate, has been Manhattan Hasbro Hospital's resident robot for more than 20 years. A prototype, humanoid in appearance, he was created to interact with people. While some staff accepted working alongside an anthropomorphic robot, Nate's very existence terrified most people, leaving the robot utilized for menial tasks and generally ignored. Until one of the hospital's physicians is found brutally murdered with Nate standing over the corpse, a blood-smeared utility bar clutched in his hand.
As designer and programmer of Nate's positronic brain, Lawrence Robertson is responsible for his creation's actions and arrested for the crime. Susan Calvin knows the Three Laws of Robotics make it impossible for Nate to harm a human being. But to prove both Nate's and Lawrence's innocence, she has to consider the possibility that someone somehow manipulated the laws to commit murder....

okay, if you can get past the author's didacticism

It starts out fairly interesting. it quickly becomes overshadowed by the authors motives which are to preach their personal moral philosophy.

Not bad, though I thought it was the Original

Good, fast paced story telling with references to current headlines artfully written into the narrative. I could definitely tell it was written from a woman's perspective ("the rippling muscles of his six-pack abdomen" sheesh), but still well done, with excellent diction and spectacular detail. A tad predictable, but I will still be back for books 2 and 3.
